AQF offers product inspection and auditing services throughout much of Asia, including India. With a team of experienced and Western-managed QC staff, we’re available to check your product on your behalf with early production, during production or final pre-shipment inspection. Our inspectors have experience with many product types and industries and can verify your product based on your specific standards.
Rarely, if ever, is an order of goods mass-produced flawlessly. You’ll almost always find quality defects and other issues in some quantity. But it’s difficult to know just how many defects are present in a particular order without inspection. If an order of goods from your Indian supplier ships with a high number of defective units, it can be very expensive to rework the product after you’ve received it. Defective goods that you’re unable to rework could cost you even more and leave your customers dissatisfied.
Product inspection in India helps you catch these and other issues before the goods leave the factory. Only by finding any problems before shipping can you address them with your supplier so they aren’t found in the finished goods you receive. This is especially important in factories operating in developing countries, like India, that are less likely to have sophisticated quality control measures in place.
Factories typically have their own quality control team. But the problem with solely relying on internal inspections is that they can be biased. The inspection results could give you an inaccurate representation of the condition of your goods when the staff inspecting are employed by the factory itself. But finding a third-party inspection firm with staff in India can be a challenge.
Hiring AQF to serve as your third-party QC partner helps you focus more on your customers and worry less about your product quality. When our team of experts conducts a product inspection in India on your behalf, you can trust that the results of our professional report are detailed and accurate. Our team will:
We know successfully sourcing from India can be a difficult task. And our team can safeguard your business from manufacturing and quality issues. With product inspection, you can be confident that your expectations are being met before your order ships.
You guys are quite efficient in making sure that you are in constant communication with our vendors to set up a time and day to have inspections handled... InTouch definitely pushed to make sure that inspections would be done in a timely manner. Any corrective actions that had to take place were executed well before the exit factory date.
Director of Production, Betabrand
Since InTouch does a more detailed inspection than what we had depended on with the factories, the quality of the products has improved. Where before when we might find 25 AQL defects, now it's down to three or four,because the factory knows that we want that cut back and InTouch is going to find it.

InTouch’s auditing reduced the level of risk, whether known or unknown, to our company. From the audit findings provided by InTouch, we were much more equipped to make the correct business decision with regard to an acceptable level of risk. The InTouch audit secured our decision making process.
Vice President of Purchasing, MJS Packaging
One of our customers had been through multiple suppliers year after year and had been let down with returns and rejections. With InTouch as our eyes and ears on the ground, we retained that business for 5 years without one single rejection or complaint.
Director of Operations, MMI Textiles
The speed that we get the reports is always good. We had an experience with some other inspectors where we had to wait an extra day to get the reports. Getting the report as soon as we can is very important, so we can make a decision and give feedback back to the factory.
Operations and Engineering Manager, Juku Gear
From beginning to end, InTouch is so easy to work with. The inspection report is literally there the next morning when I come into work. It really makes my job easier.
